A new spinning roller coaster, named Undertow, will join the Boardwalk’s scream-worthy lineup of rides next summer. Manufactured by German coaster specialist Maurer Sohne, Undertow will be the only spinning coaster in Northern California.
“A spinning coaster is a very unique ride experience, we know our visitors are going to love it,” said Boardwalk community relations director Kris Reyes. “Every ride on Undertow is different, you can definitely expect the unexpected.”
Unlike most roller coasters, which carry an entire trainload of riders, Undertow uses individual cars each holding 4 riders, with each pair of riders facing opposite directions. The ride experience changes every time, depending on the weight and position of riders in the car.
Scheduled to open Summer 2013, Undertow will take over the location currently occupied by the Hurricane roller coaster. The Hurricane’s last day of operation is September 3; the ride has been sold to Western Playland Amusement Park in New Mexico.
The Boardwalk’s last major ride to open was the Haunted Castle, which opened in 2010.
